Fake spoiler

From IFWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A series of intermittently hidden questions and answers in a list of hints such as Invisiclues that start with a question about a bizarre situation which someone would never come across while playing the game. Such a series pertains neither to the solution of puzzles nor to the plot. The last answer given is a humorous jab at the player for spending his time looking at the hints instead of trying to play the game.

The initial question is deliberately strange so as to try to convince the player both that there's so much possible in the game yet to be played, so that it's worth trying harder, and that the other hints in the list just might be fake spoilers as well, so don't ask for them, either.
